Sobriquet 52.10

I'll keep tonight's entry brief, just saying that I began rereading Disgrace one more time in the hopes of refreshing my memory as I continue writing the chapter of my dissertation devoted to the book. And, so far, it's been a good decision. There's a real comfort in the review process. As I read the book, I feel closer to Coetzee's text and, accordingly, write with a bit more vigor and ease.

For tomorrow: Read or write.


From Minxy:

Yay for easier writing! I'm all for anything that makes one's job even a wee bit more smooth-going. :)

I'm currently doing a Disgrace essay for my A level coursework(UK equivalent to...I don't know what in the USA). All I can say is...I wish I chose a better coursework title:

'History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.' - Karl Marx
To what extent does Disgrace conform to this view?

Of course, not much of Disgrace is a farce. I'm currently trying to argue that the rise of women/petrus is...not going to plan. DO NOT WANT. What's your dissertation on?
Hi there.

I think, actually, there's quite a bit to be said for the angle you seem poised to take, Prancing Pony.

You're right, of course, in saying very little in Disgrace could be read as a farce, but there are certainly elements that I suspect would lend themselves to such a reading. I wish you the best of luck!
